GLEN ROCK — After finishing its summer dual-meet schedule undefeated, Ridgewood’s Graydon Swim Team scored 199 points to take third place in Monday’s Lake League championship meet at Glen Rock Public Pool. Wyckoff defeated Radburn of Fair Lawn, 253-218, to win the team title.
The meet was originally supposed to take place on Thursday, July 26, but it was postponed due to lightning and rain. Thus, some Graydon swimmers had left for previously-planned family vacations prior to the make-up date, while other competitors were under the weather, which caused a change in the team’s lineup.
“We do the best that we can with the kids that are available to swim,” said Graydon aquatics director Dan Burzinski. “We had some holes in our lineup, but they stepped up and did the best they could.”
Ridgewood’s Graydon Swim Team produced eight gold-medal winners at Monday’s Lake League championships. Harry Linden (25-yard breaststroke), Emerson Klein (25 butterfly), Faith Cortright (100 freestyle relay) and Sophie Linden (relay). Luke Cortright (50 butterfly), Ashleigh Afromsky (50 breaststroke, 50 freestyle), Kate Sheridan (relay, 50 backstroke) and Amanda Literati (relay).
